The staff are "all" awesome!

Pros: The staff's smiles and kindness
Cons: replace toilet - with a new one When it's possible in your budget.
Location: Santa Maria is just a wonderful place to visit. Great dinner houses, theaters, etc.
Our toilet had a spotted disease, and backed up twice, but when you add water with the trash can, it cleared. the room was comfortable. We'd love to see Yogurt in the breakfast menu, not just bread items. Apples & Banana's were delicious.

Hotel should be rated 1 star...dirty & old

Pros: Staff was kind. We decided not to stay the second night and staff was kind enough to assist us with the price adjustment. Surrounding
Cons: Hotel was disgustingly dirty. Rusty drains, dirty lampshades, dirty bathrooms, lobby chairs dirty & stained. Walls were paper thin. NOT quiet hotel.
Location: Just off freeway. Near food options. Walking distance to Dignity Health Marian Regional Medical Center with beautiful sculptures, tributes, & chapel.
Booked two rooms based on reviews that said hotel is quiet. The walls were paper thin and we could hear everything happening in the hallway and parking lot. Found wires sticking out of where smoke alarm was supposed to be. Hallway smelled of marijuana. After that was addressed, the hallways smelled of smoke. Bathroom sink drain was rusty/chipped. Found hairs in bathroom. Every time we flushed toilet we feared it would overflow. Refrigerator was so loud I unplugged it. lamp shade was splattered with stains. Room felt disgustingly dirty. We heard rooms being cleaned in the morning and it could not have been a thorough cleaning based on the time spent. We booked our room 3 weeks in advance & requested adjoining rooms in a quiet location (for health reasons). We did not get adjoining rooms but they were close. Rooms were next to the main parking lot rather than next to the back parking lot. Breakfast was poor quality and chairs were disgustingly dirty. They were very strict about only allowing a short time for late checkout and not a minute late.

good to stay for a night

A comfort stay for one night there. The location is close to exit of a high way, and it is near center of the town, where you can find supermaket and good place to eat.

ok..basic accomadations

Ok place. I found the rooms to be smaller than anticipated. Breakfast spread was limited and felt a bit stale. Not a bad place but could find better for the money.
